Preview sat down with makeup artist Jung Saem Mool to learn about pulling off that dewy look that highlights a natural kind of beauty—one that’s far from stark and is lit from within. “Natural makeup gives you more confidence,” she says, and we heartily agree.

BASE PHASE

On moisturized and primed skin, apply Mary Kay’s Glowing Skin Illuminating Stick in Gold  to the undereye area, the center of your chin, and above your brows. Then mix your foundation: Timewise Luminous Wear Liquid Foundationor, a color-correcting cream, like the CC Cream with SPF15, with the Perfecting Concealer for longer wear. Saem Mool recommends applying foundation on the outer parts of the face first where skin is thicker (also on the nose), and eventually moving inward to the cheeks, undereye, and neck area for added dimension. Use a bit of the On the Go Pressed Powder to control oil on the tip of your nose, chin, and T-zone.

Pro Tip: Instead of stroking, use a tapping motion when applying foundation. This gives a lighter air-brushed effect that won't look like you piled a lot of product on.

BROW DOWN

Mimic thicker brows by filling in sparse areas with the Brow Definer Pencil in Brunette. Gently smudge the color into the area, then brush off excess product with a spoolie—no exaggerated arches, please!

ON THE LINE

While a perfect cat-eye is all the rage, JSM prefers a tight line. Use the Eyeliner in Deep Brown on the waterline to “naturally open up the eyes.”

LIP SERVICE

To sport the gradient lip trend, JSM shared two ways to work this look: For a fuller lip, use a darker shade on the outer area and a lighter hue on the inside, and blend with a cotton swab for a subtle ombré effect. But for a thinner pucker, do the lighter shade on the outer edges and the darker one on the inside.
